How to close short position?
« on: September 09, 2014, 04:29:20 pm »
I have opened short on btc(aka sold bitbtc)
when I click on "cover" I get this message -  "insufficient funds (20010) " and nothing happens.
How can I close the short? do I need to place buy order for the same amount I shorted?

Shorts will be working in 24 hours... BTSX 0.4.13 should be out shortly.
